About this event

Capitol Hill Restoration Society was founded 66 years ago to help preserve and protect the historic neighborhood’s architectural and residential character. Our mission has been, and continues to be, to uplift the community we live in through education, preservation, and events in celebration of the diverse community and history of the Hill.

We are offering guided walking tours of locations of interest on Capitol Hill. Reservations available through September 29 at 11:30 pm. Past demand has been high, with many tours selling out. So, if you want to go (and we hope you do!) don’t delay in confirming your plans.
